As funding permits, child care assistance may be provided to low-income families that have no connection to the Families First program. This assistance is known as Low-Income Child Care. Eligibility is redetermined every six months.


Approvals for new Low-Income slots were discontinued in 2002. New additions to the waiting list for Low-Income assistance were stopped in July 2004. Previously approved cases remain authorized under the following eligibilities, which collectively make up the Low-Income program:


        CCDF-WP: For working parents (with some education in some cases);


        CCDF-ET: For parents involved primarily in education and training (with some work);


        CCDF-TP: For teen parents while attending school; and


        CCDF-DD: For children with diagnosed disabilities who are over age 13.
